catching up

We had a  Valentine exchange at Friendly Stitchers, and my package had to travel all the way to Saudi Arabia! Well, it finally arrived, so I can share what I stitched for Denise. The design is a freebie  from a blog (unfortunately I don't remember which one), stitched on a neutral evenweave with one of the DMC variations threads. I added a bit of lace and finished it as a pin pillow and added a couple of pins. Denise likes it, so I am happy!

We are also doing WIP Wednesdays, and I decided to finally get some of those languishing pieces finished. The first one I finished is Waiting for the Harvest from Blackbird Designs. This was one of my crazy January starts from either last year or the year before...I can't remember. It is stitched with a pretty Waterlilies silk that someone sent to me in an exchange, on a mushroom colored fabric. The fabric is more brown than it looks in the photo. I haven't decided how I am going to finish it yet, but at least the stitching is completed.

So now I will be working on finishing Coverlet Birds, from Scarlett House. I loved this design the first time I saw it, and I don't know why I didn't just stitch it right up, but...anyway, this is my progress  so far. I will keep you posted on how it progresses.

And start on my sampler for the Scarlet Letter SAL. I wanted to start this on January 1st, but didn't get to it until Super Bowl Sunday! The design is the Abigail Gould Sampler, and here is my small start. I think I will continue to stitch on this one on Sundays. We'll see how it goes!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!


  1. Well done on your finish and great progress on the others too! :)

  2. Very nice finishes. I am in need of that finish thrill. I'm afraid my basket is overflowing.

  3. Fantastic finishes; love the Valentine's finish: very sweet.

  4. Your projects are so pretty. I especially like the sampler. The colors are lovely so far. I'm a quilter, but often wish I could have a project going on each hand at the same time - the second one would be crosstitch! Until I figure out how to do that I'll just come here and cheer you on!

  5. The little pillow just looks darling. A very pretty exchnage gift. Nice progress on your WIPs. I also ordered Abigail Gould and last week it finally arrived. I'll start stitching it next week.

  6. I love all of your WIP's....congraulations on your finishes....I love your stitching....

    Happy Stitching

  7. The bird one and the AGS one are lovely. Keep up the good work.
